Neil Patrick Harris to Host Variety Show
NBC has picked ‘How I Meet Your Mother’ star, Neil Patrick Harris, to host a variety show for the network. The show will start out with 10 episodes that include a mix of music and comedy sketches. It will be based on a long running British show called ‘Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’.The time of the show has not been settled on, nor the title of the show, but it will be produced in New York. Neil Patrick Harris has been selected to host his first Academy Awards show in February. One reason for Harris to show interest for this type of variety show could be because his name has been mentioned as a person of interest to replace Davis Letterman when he retires from his late night show.
